Staff participate in numerous community events throughout the year, and the many public education services that NVCFD offers. Fire Prevention staff are entrenched in the community, delivering public safety messages to all ages, conducting fire extinguisher training courses, and hall tours for school-aged groups.

NVCFD firefighters also volunteer countless hours in the community, raising awareness and funds for Burn Awareness Week, Fire Prevention Week, and the North Vancouver City Firefighters Scholarship Fund.
